Look For The Last Guardian Around The Holidays In 2011

By Spencer . September 16, 2010 . 1:53am


Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection is like a prelude for The Last Guardian, a made for PlayStation 3 game by Team Ico. The game features a young boy who is followed a cat-bird creature called a man-eating in eagle in Japanese.


During a Tokyo Game Show presentation, Sony announced The Last Guardian as a holiday titleā€¦ for next year. The PlayStation Blog confirmed the same release window for North America and shared another gorgeous trailer of the two characters working together.

    Shouldn’t be too surprising considering the game was completely absent from E3. Sucks to wait, but it seems like Sony gives Ueda a long leash, with as much time as he needs. I personally think that contributed noticeably to why the first two games were as awesome as they were, and I’m glad it seems the third won’t be rushed.

    That’s a long wait, but I feel that it’s a game that’s definitely worth the wait. And I feel like they’ll make great use of the time.

  • holiday 2011? That is like so far away!!! Fortunately with the Ico Collection coming so far ahead of that title, it will help people like me, finally experience the series without enough time to experience both games before this Last Guardian is out. I guess it is truly a good move.

  • Team ICO hasn’t let many down yet – so I guess it’ll be worth the long…long…long…wait. =(
    At least holidays implies December vacation; I can sit on my toosh and play til done. …is it girly to say I’m happy with the lighter tone this game seems to have? Nevertheless, I have a gut feeling the ending won’t exactly be a happy one; something to the extent of only one of em’ come out from this alive (I hope not; but Team Ico knows how to throw curveballs at you)

  • I cant even imagine how awesomethis will be…

    • I can, it will be so awesome!
      I will play it with my mouth wide open, much like when i played the first two games with a silly grin on my face because of how much of a joy they where to play.

      playx3 lol

    Holiday season 2011 is not long to wait for gaming perfection. =)
    At least we’ll have Ico and SotC in beautiful HD to tide us over until The Last Guardian.

    Well that’s one PS3 exclusive with a set release date… for Japan. If it comes out Winter 2011 for Japan… when does the west get it? This, and Ni no Kuni, Versus XIII, and GT5. When will I get my hands on any of these games? I feel sad just thinking about it.

  • I wish i could play it now , but i rather have to wait and have a great game than getting rushed that leave disapointed . XD So we shall all wait :P , Replaying Ico and SOTC in HD will be drooling ^_^
